Flash flood watch issued for parts of LA County – Press Telegram

Los Angeles — Flash flood surveillance took place in parts of Los Angeles County on Monday and continued into the evening, the National Weather Service said.

This watch influenced the Antelope Valley and San Gabriel Valley, and LA County Mountain, with the exception of the Santa Monica Mountains.

Areas that may be affected include Lancaster, El Monte, East Los Angeles, Topatopa Peak, Rays Peak, West Covina, Alhambra, Falling Springs, Pasadena, Pomona, Palmdale and Whittier, according to the NWS.

According to the NWS, scattered showers and thunderstorms (some can cause heavy rainfall with up to 1 inch of rainfall per hour) can occur.

Areas most susceptible to flash floods include areas within and below recent burn areas, such as bobcats, dams, ranch 2, and lake burn areas. According to the Meteorological Department, shallow mud and debris flows can occur within and below these burn areas, which can cause local damage.

Flash flood monitoring means that situations that lead to flash floods can occur. The NWS advised residents in the affected areas to stay vigilant and follow the instructions of emergency preparedness personnel.
